Satchel & Page: Custom Calf Leather and Waxed Cotton Jackets

$86,720

185

If you missed our Kickstarter campaign:

1. Preorder a jacket here (for a few more days)

2. Visit our website to see our full collection

Our Bomber Jacket was reviewed by BestLeather:

"The initial reaction when you hand the jacket to them is just as I described earlier…all 3 of them said, “wow – this thing feels amazing”. Then, they put it on and each, in their own way, told me I was going to have a hard time getting it back from them. They all agreed that it feels fantastic and fits well."

Satchel & Page is:

1. Heirloom quality leather and waxed cotton jackets crafted with the finest materials. French Calfskin, Spanish Shearling Wool, and waxed cotton from Fairfield Textile in New Jersey. These are premium jackets that will get better with age.

2. Authentic, timeless design. Inspired by the heritage military and riding jackets from WWII and the mid 1900s, with a cleaner look and more modern fit. These are not ‘seasonal, runway’ jackets. These are heritage jackets that will never go out of style. A legit, leather jacket is the one timeless piece that should be a part of every man’s wardrobe for decades. 

3. Demand-based manufacturing. The luxury outerwear category is defined by waste and huge markups. Every year around February, big retailers send back the styles and sizes that go unsold to the manufacturer. You guessed it – That is all built into the price of the jackets you see at stores. Why should you pay for that waste? There is a better way. We produce only the styles, colors, and sizes that you order, removing this tremendous waste in the supply chain.

4. Fairly Priced.  Premium men’s leather jackets with the type of calfskin we are using cost anywhere from $800 - $1500. Premium waxed cotton or even nylon/synthetic jackets cost between $350 - $800 (more on this below). We cut out the middleman, don’t spend money on big offices and PR firms, and take less margin so we’re able to offer our jackets at a great value.

5. A proven leather company with high quality products and great service. From our bags and wallets to our jackets, we only make high-end leather goods. Check out what the backers of our first Kickstarter campaign have to say about us: Comments

The Story

We are Satchel & Page from Austin, TX. Last year, we launched our leather bag collection here on Kickstarter with great support. Thanks to the 599 backers who supported our first project, we are now able to expand into making jackets.

Our philosophy:

• Obsession over the little details 

• Be unique

• Treat our customers (you) like family

Your Contribution

We have spent the last 10 months designing this collection, perfecting the fit, and selecting the perfect materials. Leather jackets are made with many types of leather and as a consumer, it was confusing as to which leather is best. Part of our research included field testing pig, goat, cow, lamb, and calf leather jackets for their quality, grain pattern, and most importantly, feel on the touch and feel on the body while wearing. For our leather jackets, we are using a full-grain, vegetable re-tanned calfskin from France, selected for its softness, premium hand feel, and beautiful aging characteristics. Our waxed canvas comes from Fairfield Textile, a family run business from New Jersey with over 100 years experience making textiles for the US military. We need your support to meet the minimum order requirements from our factories ($35,000), and make this project a reality.

The Collection 

We are offering our new collection at a 30-40% discount to our Kickstarter supporters. Our efficiency in only producing the styles, colors, and sizes that you order allows us to offer this pricing. Since our pricing is dependent on efficiencies gained from the crowd funding model, after this campaign we will not continue selling jackets as part of our regular business.

Why Satchel & Page?

It's confusing to buy a leather jacket. How do you know which leather to choose? Pig, Goat, Cow, Lamb, Calf? We chose to use calf leather for our jackets for its combination softness, feel, weight, and durability:

Fit / Sizing Guide

Our jackets fit like a fine garment should, not like you are wearing a parachute. We believe in a modern, tailored fit. But at the same time, there is room to wear layers of clothing. 

To help you choose the right size we are providing a standard size chart, a full list of our jacket measurements, and a measurement guide. If you think you are in between sizes, we recommend sizing up.

*UPDATED STRETCH GOAL: We are offering custom sleeve + body lengths on our jackets. The guidelines:

1. They will be produced only after all standard orders are made.

2. You provide us your measurements, and we make the jacket accordingly. We will get your information at the close of the campaign.

3. No exchanges on custom jackets.

The measurements of our jackets in inches and CM are below. You can use this guide to understand the below measurements and compare them to a jacket that fits you well. 

Exchanges

In the case that you order the wrong size, exchanges are free. Backers are responsible for shipping both ways. Custom jackets can not be exchanged.

Refunds

Unfortunately, as we're basing our order with the factory on our Kickstarter campaign and providing a huge discount, we cannot offer refunds.

Production Plan

Beginning of December - Kickstarter Campaign ends 

Beginning of December – Send out surveys to confirm color and sizes 

Beginning of December – Prepare the leather and raw materials 

Late December- Leather is ready and begin cutting 

Late December - Begin sewing 

Mid January - Finish sewing / Begin Quality Inspection 

End of January - Transportation 

Mid February - Ship rewards to you 

February Onwards - You have the go to jacket you've been looking for

We use a responsible sourcing model where we produce at the best workshops that are located near the best quality raw materials. Our leather jackets will be made in Europe and our waxed canvas jackets will be made at a veteran owned and staffed factory in the USA. 

Risks and challenges

The main risk of any project like this is delays in materials and production. This is where our experience comes in. We’ve executed big projects like this and we know what it takes. Our last Kickstarter project, raised 15 times our goal of $15,000. Even with the demand well above what we expected, we fulfilled all rewards with great quality, within 1 month of our projected delivery dates. This project should go even smoother, as we have learned alot from our first Kickstarter project. Our manufacturing, quality control, and fulfillment infrastructure is firmly in place in order to deliver on time and at the highest standards of quality.

We pride ourselves in providing great customer service and promise to communicate frequently and openly with you, so please support this project with confidence.
